Adam Haber is co-founder and CEO of Trellus Same-Day Local Delivery.
He is a dedicated community servant who has held various leadership positions over the course of his career. He served as a Roslyn School Board trustee from 2009 to 2018, where he advocated for residents and children and played a crucial role in bringing the Roslyn School District back from an $11.2 million theft.
Additionally, from 2018 to 2019, he worked as the Head of Economic Development at the Town of Hempstead, which increased his passion for assisting small businesses on Long Island.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Haber spearheaded Project Long Island, aimed at rebuilding over 200 homes in Long Beach.
The project was coordinated by All Hands and Hearts, a disaster relief organization where he is currently a board member. Haber also serves as a board member of the Hagedorn Little Village School, which provides educational and therapeutic services for children with developmental disabilities.
An entrepreneur with a deep passion for learning, Haber has real experience creating jobs, attracting capital, and managing complex budgets. He spent 22 years as a commodity options trader and owned three restaurants, one of which was awarded a Michelin Star.
He is a non-operating principal of ScanlanKemperBard, a commercial real estate merchant bank based in Portland, Ore. Haber is also an active member of the Long Island Angel Network and has invested in several startups.
In February 2021, Haber and his partners launched Trellus Same-Day Local Delivery designed for the needs of small business owners.
Trellus provides local businesses with the technology platform and network of reliable gig-drivers needed to offer local delivery services to customers. Small businesses are empowered to handle their own package fulfillment, and because Trellus doesn’t take a portion of each sale, businesses keep more of their hard-earned revenue.
In turn, local customers can get purchases from their favorite local businesses delivered more quickly and conveniently. To date, more than 350 Long Island merchants are on the Trellus network, and Trellus has completed more than 40,000 successful deliveries.
The company is currently planning to launch a direct-to-consumer marketplace with integrated local delivery at checkout.
Haber takes pride in his role as a community developer and enjoys networking with local business owners.
Through his experiences in local government, he’s noticed that “Shop Local” is too often used as a catchphrase, with no real solutions behind it.
He believes Trellus is the solution that can break down barriers for small businesses to become more competitive. He looks forward to connecting with more Long Island business owners to address their pain points with last-mile logistics and help them succeed.
